I wonder if I should shut this venue down again, at least for a while. I became conscious this weekend of just how compromised my perspective has become since becoming a father. You really should have trusted me before--I was a reliable and decent person, whose seeking was an earnest effort to make the world better for all, and not just myself. Sift through the archives, friends. I was a prophet then, a bona fide soothsayer. I had your interests in my heart.
Now, after this...
...I don't give two cents about "Ethics" or "Justice." If keeping all of Africa impoverished means my daughter can have a better life, then fine. Or, conversely, if bolstering Africa with aid makes my daughter's life better, then fine. But don't talk to me of Justice, man. I'm a rogue nation. I might even be lying right now, right to your Face.
Don't ever elect me to public office. That's all I'm saying.
